Quick answer yes and we have been given our tools. John 20:30,31

30  And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
31  But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

The Church has already been established were are sent to help add to it for it is already established.

Acts 2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.


Yes, God's Church has already been established, and He Adds to His church daily.

9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.

10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. (Already Laid)

And how to we get to Jesus, according to Him?

Matt. 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

I have a question. Do you believe Zechariahs was a member of the Christ's Church? Simeon? Anna? The Wise men?

I see at least two choices here.
First, all are baptized with/in the Holy Spirit,
and this is how the Spirit gives what gift He chooses to each person.
Or, second, all are gifted by the Spirit apart from baptism with/in the Holy Spirit,
and this baptism has some other purpose.
I believe the second choice.

Okay, you have a valid point here since it may not be explicitly stated in the NT.

However, my experiences in Pentecostal/Charismatic churches (and other churches)
leads me to be absolutely positive that this baptism is necessary to have
any of the 9 spiritual "power" gifts of 1 Corinthians 12.

Canton is an amazing place, but NOT in the dog days of summer. Never was so hot in my life.

The gift of the Holy Spirit is the indwelling Holy Spirit is baptism with the Holy Spirit.
As seen in Acts chapter two. This is where the church opened the doors for the first time and God added to the church those that were being saved. Here we read that the Apostles got power of witness while the other three thousand got the indwelling as promised of God as seen in verse 39.

It does not say all got the power but all did get the indwelling spirit as promised, Acts 19 1-5 verifies this.

And after the shutters went up, Mrs. Barbarian thought the porch pillar looked a little dull.   At First Monday, in Canton, I found a box of cast-iron frogs that had been used as some kind of architectural detail, and...


Anyone can get old and eccentric and just put up lawn art.   

I love those shutters and the cast-iron frogs are a touch that gives your home a unique flair (which I like).

BTW, please stop rubbing it in about going to Canton, ok?   ::crackup:: I've never been, but it's on my bucket list.

Yes Mommydi, I have no idea what the purpose of pressure treated wood is because the things I would think it would alleviate are the things it most exascerbates.

Inside, I'm painting it white and installing green indoor/outdoor carpeting.

She'll have a combination of rolling racks and built-in shelving.    And lots of pegboard, I think.   A rack to hold a  fold-up work table.   And who knows what else.   I've got a long process ahead of me.   I love doing those things.



And she's really happy.   Which is all I wanted.

So sweet of you and she does look so happy about her gift! Please keep updating with pics as you go.

Red in our area the 3 inch galvanized pipe posts and clamps is the preferred method for anyone wanting a fence to stay up. Cedar posts tend to rot out pretty quickly here even in the dry climate. Also, quite a few people put the posts and railings to the inside of their fence so that would be intruders can’t easily use the fence railes to scale the fence. My backyard fence has the finished side to the inside. Also a lot of people pour a curb at the bottom of the fense to prevent the pockets from having contact with the dirt.


My parents just had a new fence put up, and they used the galvanized pipe posts. I'm getting ready to do the same.

Got a quest for you. Why does pressure treated wood posts ALWAYS twist horribly? I replace a wood post once at a previous house and specifically picked out treated cedar. Within a few weeks, the post twisted like a candy cane almost 90 degrees and I had to dif it out and replace with a non treated post.

Yes, and split! We had dry rot in our front and back porch posts, so we replaced them with treated cedar. They are splitting like crazy and need to be replaced again.

The only BACs who have any of the 9 spiritual "power" gifts in 1 Cor 12
(to any degree much at all) ...
are the ones who have been baptized with the Holy Spirit.

I.E. this baptism opens the door to receiving any of the 9 "power" gifts.

1 Cor 12 tells us that all BACs are gifted in some way; we all have a place, a function, in the body. Nothing in scripture tells us that certain people are given their gifts from the Spirit through baptism with/in the Holy Spirit and that others are given their gifts some other way.

I see at least two choices here. First, all are baptized with/in the Holy Spirit, and this is how the Spirit gives what gift He chooses to each person. Or, second, all are gifted by the Spirit apart from baptism with/in the Holy Spirit, and this baptism has some other purpose.

I believe the second choice.
